Experimental studies on analogical retrieval have shown that interdomain retrieval is less frequent than intradomain retrieval. Using a production paradigm, Blanchette and Dunbar (2000) obtained opposite results. Dunbar (2001) hypothesized that when analogs are encoded in natural settings, retrieval is not constrained by superficial similarity. The study reported here complemented the production paradigm with two additional controls: 1) a survey of naturally encoded sources available in long-term memory, and 2) a measure of analogical retrieval that was less vulnerable to report bias. Comparison between available and retrieved sources demonstrated that retrieval under a production paradigm?just as retrieval under a reception paradigm?is strongly constrained by superficial similarity.
